Congrats! You have just embarked on a new phase of your life with your special someone. Decorating your first home together will be a good opportunity to work as a team and a good way to start your new life together. Your bedroom is your love nest, so make sure you both love it! Here are some tips to create a bedroom space that truly belongs to you and your partner!
1. Gallery of memories
As newly weds, you want to celebrate the memories that you have had together, and the new ones you will be making! Create a gallery wall above your headboard with your photos, or even places you want to go together. Check out this 6-step guide on creating that perfect gallery wall.
2. Set the mood with lighting
Play around with ambient lighting to create a romantic mood in your bedroom. Chandeliers are definitely very romantic, but if you're more of a minimalist, go for dimmers so you can adjust the brightness of your room. Also, a warm yellow light is definitely more romantic than bright white bulbs.
3. Sensuous textures
Decorate your bedroom with soft and fine fabrics like silk or a fur throw to create a sexy and cosy feel!
4. Dramatic canopy beds
Canopy beds are perfect to create a sense of privacy! Go the extra step and install canopy drapes to create a very romantic look.
5. Pillow, pillows, pillows!
Add more pillows to create that dreamy hotel look that we all love. Besides, you'll be having lots of pillow talk so get comfy!
6. Soothing scents
Spray your bedsheets and room with refreshing scents that you both love. Soothing fragrances can also help to calm you down after a long day at work, so you can have a more relaxed time with each other. Cary Caster, a clinical aromatherapist, recommends the use of sweet orange and jasmine scents for a calming effect.
7. Warm caramel walls
If you're still thinking of what colour to paint your walls, opt for caramel tones! Surveys have shown that caramel walls have a high correlation to a better relationship between man and wife.
8. Declutter your bedroom
The worst thing for a newly wed's room is to have clutter that stresses you and your partner out. Check out this awesome list of 27 practical ways to hide that clutter!
9. Baroque accents
Using a few Baroque style decorations can really make a bedroom feel more romantic! Either choose a gold Baroque mirror or a chair to really bring out the romance in the room.
10. Love for travel
If you and your partner both love to travel, why not have a travel-inspired bedroom? Albeit not a common romantic look, decorating your bedroom around common travel escapades (or the ones you're going to make together), can really add a personal touch to your bedroom that is unique to the both of you!
